Patches of Blue Quilt Along – Block 10 Blue Barn
Updated: Jan 4
Welcome back to our Quilt Along!
Blue Barn is the October Block that we will make and add to our beautiful sampler quilt from the “Patches of Blue” book.
October is filled with Pumpkins,
one of my favorite flowers – “Mums”,
and many new fabric collections like our “Bakers Dozen”.
Which are perfect for blue and white quilts like our “Alaska” pattern.
I can’t help myself to grab one of these “Bakers Dozen” batik pieces to add it to our Quilt Along Block. For this block you will need:
1 fat eighth blue fabric 1 fat eighth light fabric
The Blue Barn pattern can be found in our “Patches of Blue” book on page 44.
Cutting directions are on page 45 and you’ll also will need templates from page 50-51 to cut some of the shapes.
Start by tracing the templates from page 50-51, double check the size against the book before cutting your fabrics.
Position your templates on the right side of the fabric you are using. (I use a bit of double sided tape to keep the templates from moving.)
Place ruler along the edge of the template to protect them as you cut with a rotary cutter.
All remaining blue pieces for the block should be cut following the cutting directions in the book.
Now we need to do the same for the light fabric, first cut pieces with templates,
then cut window and door trim pieces by following the cutting directions from the “Patches of Blue” book.
